KILLEEN, Texas (KWTX) A standoff that started Monday morning after Killeen police received a report of a suicidal man in a home in the 2500 block of Lavender Lane ended peacefully.

The man was detained and no one was injured, police said.

Earlier Monday, Killeen police spokeswoman Carroll Smith said officers were trying to talk with a 37-year-old soldier who had locked himself inside the house and was refusing to come out.

Police say he was inside the house alone.

The house is near Shoemaker High School, but school.

Bachelor Button Drive and Autumn Valley Drive were closed to traffic until the standoff ended.
